Battle of Brooklyn 10M!

Changing up today's post by sharing an upcoming race in Brooklyn.  Would be great for those who didn't get into the NYRR Long Training run before it was full or just looking for a change of scenery.  For me, it's going to be my last long run before Dumbo!

(side note - I am not getting anything for sharing this race.  A friend of mine is organizing it and I am just trying to help spread the event and details).

So...about this race.  It's being put on by Jack Rabbit Sports and is the Battle of Brooklyn 10 Miler.  It takes place on August 18th in Prospect Park.

The race commemorates the largest battle of the Revolutionary War, which was fought on the soil of Brooklyn 237 years ago (who knew?  Seriously, I had no idea!).

If you don't want to run the whole 10 miles, they also have a 3 person relay option.

The first 1,000 people to register get a fancy Avex water bottle! I have drawers of race shirts, so I like the idea of something different. The Avex bottle features:
  • A pop up spout that you can open with one hand
  • Completely sealed when closed, so you don't need to keep it upright (I am pretty excited about this as I constantly have water in my bag and not having to worry about it spilling!)
  • Completely dishwasher safe (as I am my own dishwasher, this is not important to me, but I am sure it is to others)

Plus, bag watch will be open from 6:30am - 11:30am for those in marathon training who need to add on some miles (or are slower runners).

As I said, a friend of mine works for Jack Rabbit (and is putting the race together) and she provide a coupon code for those interested in running the race. Use code J25EB to get $5 off your registration.

Maybe I'll see you there!
